Went with my Peruvian dad for lunch last week. Excellent ceviche and anticuchos. Wonderful service as well. Would absolutely go back.

I would give it a 3 1/2 star since I think I had better Peruvian food in LB and other areas. The place is super clean and the service is very good. I had mariscos salteado. My friend had aji de gallina and my other...More

Although the menu is fantastic across the board, the ceviche is by far my favorite. The serving of fish is good sized, and the mix of flavors is just right. I've eaten ceviche here about 20 times and it is always great. The ceviche mixto...More

My ceviche and arroz verde were honestly tasteless. I had Peruvian food in a couple of restaurants in Barcelona and I gave them 4 and 5 out of 5. They were good. I can only give this restaurant a 2 out of 5. Service was...More
